Cooked Fresh Vegatables from the Garden

This is the second picking of snap beans, the fifth picking of squash, and the third picking of blueberries. These are the only white squash so far. Nearly everything is about done making. All that is left are some tomatos, bell pepper, jalapeno and peas. I have picked only four very small cucumbers.

This is what I did with the squash. Zucchini and yellow squash with a whole onion and bell pepper and sliced Conecuh Smoked Sausage. Any smoked sausage will do. Stir fry in a little oil and season with cajun seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper. Serve over rice. Ummm.
The snap beans cooked with just a little oil and salt and pepper and a dash of cajun seasoning. Can you tell I like cajun seasoning. It adds a little or a lot of flavor depending how much you use.

Done with the cooking.
Hope your veggie gardens are doing well and you are reaping an abundance.

Oh, that sausage/squash dish looks and sounds so good. If I had the sausage, I could make it for dinner. I may have to make a trip to town to get it...

Don't you just LOVE going to your back yard and picked tonight's dinner? :-)

Looks good! My beans are just coming up. I got them in a little later than I could have. We have been putting raw peas on our salads. Tonight, I microwaved them (edible pod) with kohlrabi and onions from the garden, and mushrooms. I put fresh dill and parsley on them.

As for cajun seasoning, we don't use it often, but just the other day, I used it on some pork chops my husband grilled. It was good that way.

Becca, Your fresh veggies sound SO good. I'm so jealous.. We stop by the produce market for ours --but they are not nearly as good as ones that come right out of the yard. I can almost TASTE yours!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Just recently I have found out about stirfrying squash (I, being a GOOD southern chick thought battered fried squash or squash casserole was the only way to eat squash (oh yea, also squash bread:)), I'm in love!! (Think I'll try a little seasoning and some rice for hubby:)
Great post:)

Looks like things are growing great in your garden. I am always looking for new way to make a meal out of squash. Thanks for another great idea.

I finally made this just a few minutes ago. I am sitting here eating it as I type. It is SOOO good! I love it. I didn't have Cajun seasoning, so I used red pepper flakes (sparingly) and file'. I took photos, so it will be featured on my blog in a day or two, with the credit being given to you. Thanks for this recipe!
